This is the best medium for creating glazes as it gives maximum transparency to the colour as well as enhancing colour brilliance. This enables you to build up thin layers of highly transparent colour to achieve luminous and glowing effects. The medium is translucent so it ensures no colour shift from wet to dry when used with Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic.
The medium improves the flow of the colour to give you good levelling. It slows the drying time of the paint so colours will remain usable slightly longer when mixed with this medium. It dries to a completely clear flexible film with a high gloss finish. It can be mixed with colour or used neat as a clear glaze, but is not intended to be a varnish. It is highly durable and is water resistant when dry.
